I'm going to school for special effects makeup, and in my cosmetic makeup class we did Halloween face-painting.  The goal was to create 3-d effects using light and shadow.  I kinda wish I'd done something a little more dramatic as far as altering my model's face, but I'm still kinda happy with how it came out.

I guess my teacher was too, since he asked me to re-do it as part of a group that was photographed for a newspaper article about our school.  Sadly, my makeup was not actually featured in the final article (which was rather scanty on photos, imo).

Anyhoo, here's the makeup:

The above photos are the third iteration of the makeup.  Here's some shots of the first, practice, version:

I think the overall color of the practice makeup is more dead-looking, but it tickles me that the bluish tones in the shadows of the other go with the model's eyes. XD

Anyhoo, comments, crits, etc. are always appreciated.  Thanks for looking!

Thanks, y'all. ^_^

It turns out that even though we weren't featured in the article, there is a brief shot of us in the video they did for the newspaper's website, about 20 seconds in.  Better than nothing, I suppose. Smiley
